On Saturday, the Rev. Dr Peter Carrell was ordained a bishop, and then installed as the 9th Bishop of Christchurch in Cathedral Square in front of the quake-damaged cathedral. Christchurch, in the Province of Canterbury, is an Anglican settlement, New Zealand’s first city because of the cathedral. The cathedral will be reconstructed. This is to be completed in the next decade.
Here is Peter’s ordination service:
In Peter’s ordination, the increased stress on biculturalism was notable – Peter gave a moving mihi in Te Reo (video above 25:52). Pihopa Rihare Wallace QSM, of Te Wai Pounamu, gave the homily (video 56:17).
Peter is a blogging bishop – conscious of the 21st Century context in which we exercise mission and ministry.
